Slam-A-Phobia At Walkerville Brewery

By Dan MacDonald

(WINDSOR, ON) – The 5th Annual Slam-A-Phobia, coincides with The International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, which takes place every May 17. People from of all orientations in the community will perform spoken word and poetry pieces dealing with sexuality, self-acceptance, bullying, and homophobia.

The event is unique in that it allows feedback from the community, directly addressing the issues of homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in Windsor-Essex.

Formerly Slam Homophobia, the event name changed this year to Slam-A-Phobia to make it inclusive to Windsor’s Bi and Trans community and be reflective of every aspect of the day.

Fun, informative, heart-wrenching, and sometimes hilarious, Slam-A-Phobia explores perspectives and thoughts on the impact homo/bi/trans-phobia has had on all of us. Many members of the straight community come out to offer their own experiences with homo/bi/trans-phobia, and of course members and allies of the LGBT community will share their stories as well.

Slam-A-Phobia is a bridge connecting all orientations through poetic expression and honest story-telling. Slam-A-Phobia takes place on Saturday, May 17 at 7:30 pm at Walkerville Brewery located at 525 Argyle Road; a new location for this year.
